Morning.

It's another warm one.

Snow is still forecast over the next few days, as well as a drop in temperatures from tomorrow, though I can't help but feel that the snow part of the forecast has been downgraded somewhat since yesterday. Anyway, here's hoping for some fresh snowfall to liven things up.

This morning it's very much spring conditions out there. Come with that in mind and it'll be fun.
